Election day is Tuesday, November 6! This is one of the most important elections in recent memory when it comes to public education. We must make sure that our public schools have the resources they need to properly serve our students, and that teachers are treated like the professionals they are—with competitive compensation and the autonomy to do the jobs they have been trained for.
In addition to the race for State Superintendent of Public Instruction, there are many other races that will determine the future trajectory of public education in Idaho. From statewide contests to local elections to ballot initiatives, virtually every box you fill in on your ballot will affect our public schools in some way. We encourage you to research the candidates, gather information, and vote for candidates who will support teachers and students and protect public education.

You can register to vote at your county clerk’s office up until 24 hours before the polls open. Idaho also offers same-day registration. You will be asked to provide proof of residence and photo identification.
